Pennsylvania cousins plead not guilty in alleged murders of 4 men
Cosmo DiNardo and Sean Kratz, two cousins charged in the brutal murder of four men in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in July entered not guilty pleas during their arraignment on Thursday.
Hundreds gathered at the candlelight vigil to remember Dean Finocchiaro, Tom Meo, Mark Sturgis and Jimi Patrick, who were killed and their remains buried on a sprawling family farm.
Cosmo DiNardo has been charged with murder in all four deaths, while his cousin Sean Kratz has been charged in three of the alleged murders.
Cosmo DiNardo confessed to the murders and named his cousin Sean Kratz as an accomplice.
Craig Patrick says he would rather see the killer of his nephew Jimi Patrick "growing old in a cage" instead of receiving the death penalty.
Cosmo DiNardo allegedly lured the men on the premise of a drug deal with the help of Sean Kratz.
Two 20-year-old men have been charged with multiple counts of homicide in the slayings of four young men in southeast Pennsylvania, authorities said.
Cosmo DiNardo confessed to killing four missing Pennsylvania men, according to one of his defense attorneys, who said the motive for the slayings will come out in time.
Cosmo DiNardo's attorney said DiNardo told authorities where the four bodies were located in exchange for being spared the death penalty.
The confession comes after the remains of one of the men were found in a grave on his family's property.
